Dinsmore Hires Commercial Litigation Partner Christopher Lyon in San Diego

June 25, 2019

Dinsmore & Shohl LLP has welcomed Christopher Lyon, a new commercial litigation partner, in its San Diego location. He rounds out the office’s strong team of litigation attorneys and is the firm’s third litigation partner in the city.

Lyon has specialized in defense of insurance companies in personal injury cases, which he predominantly worked on for the last 10 years as house counsel for a major Fortune 100 company. At Dinsmore, he’ll lead a team of attorneys working on product liability and breach of warranty claims.

“It’s exciting to add a trial lawyer like Chris to our growing San Diego office,” said office managing partner and board member Joe Leventhal. “Chris adds significant skills to our bench of trial lawyers.”

While representing the Fortune 100 company, Lyon took hundreds of depositions and tried many cases to successful verdicts.

“It’s interesting work. While cases tend to follow a similar pattern, they’re all different and they require varying methods to achieve the result we believe is right,” Lyon said. “So I’m excited to continue that kind of work at Dinsmore, where I can strategize with clients to best achieve our goals.”

Lyon has been practicing since his 2005 graduation from Vermont Law School, which followed his 2000 B.S. from UCSD.

Outside the office, Lyon and his wife are parents to three boys. He is an avid runner, and a lifelong Los Angeles Dodgers fan.
